Help me to guarantee intensive summer treatments and to improve my quality of life even more!
In this year, so difficult for everyone, I add to my difficulties the fact of not being able to carry out the normal maintenance physiotherapy treatments during the year. At the moment, I am in a complicated situation! That is why, more than ever, and because I am literally stopped, I need to guarantee the intensive treatments of summer 2021!
It is very important that, if you decide to help me, check the option " Unconditional donation ". This safeguards that, even if the total amount is not reached, at least your donation is guaranteed! :)
I was born premature, at 29 weeks of gestation and suffered Cerebral Palsy, which prevents me from walking. Cerebral Palsy affects me "only" at the motor level (I have some difficulty with the upper limbs and I travel in a wheelchair ). The cognitive part was fortunately preserved.
Since the age of 3 I have been doing intensive treatments, first in Cuba, now in a clinic in Portugal that follows similar methods (CHS-CEI). The aim of treatments is to improve my quality of life and I have many hopes of one day being able to walk.
Unfortunately, the Portuguese health system does not participate in the treatments and my family has to pay for them.
The treatments are done in cycles, preferably for 2 months, during the summer school holidays. Each cycle, lasting 28 days , currently costs €5,500. So I need €11,000 / year in total. I ask for your help in raising the value of one of the cycles (which can be done alone, or together with another, in case my family can pay the rest). The fact that we ask for €6,000, instead of €5,500, is due only to the PPL commission amounts (the €6,000 will be €5,446.50).
I leave you a video of my summer / 2020 treatments, I hope you like it!
